The House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives

The Washington Post Sunday - - SUNDAY OPINION -

has passed a bill to dis­man­tle the Af­ford­able Care Act. Those rep­re­sen­ta­tives who voted for it can­not re­turn home and tell their con­stituents that it is a good bill, be­cause they did not al­low the Con­gres­sional Bud­get Of­fice the op­por­tu­nity to an­a­lyze it. In­stead, they punted a half-baked hot potato to the Se­nate, where we can only hope it will re­ceive the in­ten­sive ex­am­i­na­tion and thought­ful due dili­gence that re­spon­si­ble leg­is­la­tion re­quires. What kind of rep­re­sen­ta­tives do this? Ones who are un­wor­thy of the pub­lic’s trust. Karen Im­ler, Arlington
